"Kimberly recently came to speak to a cohort of senior Fonterra women and was inspirational with her sage and practical advice drawn from years of experience on how to thrive in a male-dominated environment. I particularly liked her emphasis on embracing the strong qualities women possess and using it to our competitive advantage. Some important insights from behavioural and cognitive psychology were also very helpful. Highly recommend Kimberly and look forward to welcoming her back at Fonterra."

"I recently got an opportunity to host Kimberly Sumner at Microsoft New Zealand for a session on 'Neuroscience of the Brain'....I would encourage everyone to explore ways of bringing these kind of discussions within your organisation and if you are NZ based definitely reach out to Kimberly to do something similar to what she did recently at Microsoft New Zealand. We will certainly be doing more of these sessions over the coming months."

"I attended a leadership conference where Kimberly was a key speaker. She was factual and gave some great insights and actions that I could apply to not only my professional life but my personal life. It was also great that she reached out after to continue our dialogue re some stuff I wanted to work on. She’s a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend either working with her or going to one of her talks! Either way, you’ll get value."
